We were the day after a monumental binge and we had to digest the emotions, understand the emptiness and accept the obvious. Roger Federer ended his professional career well after a quarter of a century of delightful successes and heartbreaking defeats. The Swiss knew how to make this next day easy. Heartbroken and red eyes the day before, for his last game, he wore the model teammate overcoat in this Laver Cup without complaining. The former world number 1 crouched for most of the day on the black sofas behind the bench, supporting his replacement Matteo Berrettini first, then Cameron Norrie then.
